Finding Your Own Way (against the “crowd”).
Earl Nightingale, one of the original “success thinkers and speakers” once said something to the effect of, “If you are wondering where to go, notice where the crowd is going and then go in the opposite direction.”
I think ultimately this is some of the most profound advice you can ever take in.
As a musician, I noticed that doing what all the other musicians were doing, playing in bars, driving hundreds of miles for lousy $100 dollar gigs, or whatever, was not what I wanted to be doing. Taking old Earl’s advice for me has led to this very website where all of my passions and interests can support and cross pollinate each other is for me doing something the “crowd” isn’t.
Somebody else (I think it was Shakespeare) said…
“To thine own self be true”
The process of discovering what is “true” for your own self, is ultimately what we are doing here every single day.
BTW “MOST PEOPLE”, are too busy doing what everybody else is doing to even notice that their very existence here in this thing we call “Life”, is amazing and that we each have ultimate control over our results and realities…
Here’s today’s Mind Mastery Daily video:
Your “take away” today is to play with the notion of going against the crowd. Pursuing your own independent path of living and thinking. Stop going along to get along (At least in your Mind…at least for today…).
As always be gentle with yourself here. This is about being playfully and joyfully the captain of your own ship… Go where YOU want to go. Stop being a “follower”.
And btw, you won’t be lonely! We are ALL playing with this today here at HonestHypnosis.com!
I will see YOU on the INSIDE!
p.s. A warm Transformation Nation welcome to all of you action takers who DARED leave the crowd of fear filled folks to bravely explore my CRUSH anxiety NOW! course over the weekend. If that’s not you but you’re thinking about it, you might want to take a deep breath and explore it yourself before the price goes up.
